"We fear that the five decapitated bodies found near Kaduvela in Avissawela
may belong to Tamil civilians who have been arrested during searches and
disappeared from Colombo," said Leader of Upcountry Peoples Front (UPF) and
parliamentarian P.Chandrasekaran in a letter sent to Sri Lanka's President
Mahinda Rajapakse Thursday, sources in Colombo said.
Five headless male corpses were found in Puwakpitiya and Dehiowita in Avissawella police division Thursday morning. A senior police officer in the division said the victims, believed to be Tamil youths, have been brutally murdered and their headless bodies were spotted by the estate workers in the area and informed the police.
The bodies were only partially clothed, belonged to males, and have serious
cut injuries to the bodies, sources in Avissawela said.
Several travellers coming from Trincomalee to Colombo also have been
arrested and disppeared, Chandrasekaran said.
